Sexual Abuse Intervention Program

Counsellor:Gayle Maddocks, MA , RCAT, BCATR
Our sexual Abuse Intervention Program (SAIP) is designed for children and youth between the ages of 3 and 18 who have been sexually abused, where sexual abuse is suspected or children aged 12 and under who have sexual behavior problems. In addition to counselling and psychotherapy the expressive arts are used, including art play and sand play therapy and the children may be taught safety skills as necessary. Education and information is provided to parents, caregivers and members of the community on childhood sexual development, developmentally appropriate vs non-appropriate sexual behaviors and how to teach sexual safety to children.
